Upper Room at Mariners Irvine
We all have questions. From the reality of suffering to the disentanglement of cultural Christianity from confident faith, what should our posture be as we wrestle through our doubts and engage others in meaningful conversations?

Join us for this panel-driven discussion hosted by our Irvine Discipleship Pastor, John Thomas, as we learn how tough questions can actually bring us closer to Jesus—not further from Him, following our On The Table weekend message, The Path of Deconstruction: What Do I Do With My Doubts.  The cost of your registration ($10 per person) will go towards lunch.

Date: Sunday, February 11 • 12:45p - 2p (Don't worry, you will be home in time for the Super Bowl!!)

Childcare Available
